The new SAT will be administered for the
first time in March 2005 for the graduating class of 2006.
However Amlon Tutors are abreast of the changes and ready to prepare
you for this high-stakes exam.
The former SAT verbal section will be renamed
SAT critical reading.
This section will no longer include analogies.
Instead, short reading passages will be added to existing
long reading passages.
The SAT math section will be expanded to
cover three years of high school math.
Instead of just covering concepts from Geometry and Algebra
I, the new SAT math section will contain concepts from Geometry,
Algebra I and Algebra II.
The Quantitative Comparison questions will be eliminated.
A new section called the SAT writing section
will be added.
It will contain 36 multiple-choice grammar questions
And one 25-minute written essay. The essay will be scored
by two human graders using a method identical to that of
the SAT II Writing test. Scores on the essay and grammar
section will be combined to produce a single Writing score
between 200 and 800.
The 2003 PSAT/NMSQT will be the best preparation for the new
PSAT/NMSQT in 2004 and the new SAT in 2005.
